Took my 6 year old daughter on our first visit and she loved it. Large interactive area set up like a medieval castle. Kids can go to different rooms to explore and play. There are benches located throughout for parents to rest. Library area had nice selection of books and computers available. There is a puppet show display near entrance which was cute. My daughter "performed" a show while I sat and watched. We went on a weekday so crowd was minimal. Free wifi and free parking underneath which was a plus. Only 90 mins free and make sure to validate parking ticket on way out. Upper areas had place for teens to hang out. I think it's a great place the whole family can enjoy.

My kids LOVE it here too! We normally take the train (Lynx) into down/uptown and enjoy ImaginOn and Discovery Place. ImaginOn has lots to do for all age kids.

ImaginOn is a great destination for the whole family. There is something there for kids of all ages. Plus, it is within walking distance of so many things. Definitely a destination for the whole family.

We rode the light rail up to just outside the ImaginOn library. The whole experience was so memorable. The kids enjoyed story time and just exploring the whole library.

This is a library, first and foremost. It's not as impressive to me as the Huntington Beach Central Library in HB Ca. This is smallish and not many exhibits other than ones geared toward younger children. This to me would be a great library if you are a local, but not worth the drive from Concord. On a bright note, the parking garage is clean and brightly lit. Have your ticket validated, and there will be no fee.
